At Shakti Yoga Studio, a team of certified instructors leads an array of classes for body-benders of all levels looking to develop strength, flexibility, balance, and focus. With sessions held mornings, evenings, and on weekends, the studio offers a convenient schedule designed to accommodate students wherever they happen to lie on the yoga proficiency scale, from novice to circus contortionist. Shakti's offerings include Yoga 101, which acquaints yogic neophytes with the basics of posing, breathing, and sun-saluting, as well as gentle yoga, a leisurely paced variant that uses bolsters, straps, chairs, straw hats, and other props to assist students with limited mobility. More advanced practitioners can opt for power flow, a vigorous and athletic class that incorporates breath and movement synchronization, or yin yoga, in which students hold postures for 3–10 minutes to hone in on joints and connective tissues. The studio's commitment to inclusiveness extends to options geared toward seniors, prenatal mothers, and curious bendy straws.
